Description

Pediatric palliative care deals with the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual concerns of patients and their families. And to do this, clinicians must use all the tools at their disposal, including pharmacological and nonpharmacological modalities. Virtual reality is quickly becoming a useful tool in many areas of medicine, including surgical planning, simulation training, rehabilitation, and pain prevention and treatment. Recently it has been used in the adult palliative care population, for symptom management, and memory and legacy creation. We present a case report for, what we believe to be, the first time in the pediatric palliative care population.
